Dear Mr. Zander,
It was a FANTASTIC performance!
My husband and I were both very moved. Adrian walked out of the Symphony hall and about 10 minutes later realized that he left there his hat and gloves...
It is facinating how at the end music contradicts the words - as if he was trying to convince himself, but didn't really believe in what he was saying. Amazing.
You have a way of doing rubato that is quite exquisite - it's rather subtle, not at all showy and brings out so much live!
I love hearing you talk at the beginning - it's like you are "serving" music to the audience in such a way that it's impossible not to "eat it up"
CONGRATULATIONS AND THANK YOU SO MUCH!
